“Toni Stone” Is A Tremendous Play

May 29, 2019

“Toni Stone” (playing at Roundabout at Laura Pels Theatre 111 West 46th Street), written by Lydia R. Diamond is a superb, humorous and meaningful play about Ms. Stone, who was the first woman to ever play baseball in a professional league, having done so in the so called Negro League, in 1953.

Obie-award winning, April Matthis leads a tremendous cast, telling Toni Stone’s story, her great pursuit of and love of playing baseball with humor, insight and a beautiful moving, “get with it” pace.

Again it is a superb cast. Their names follow: Eric Berryman, Harvy Blanks, who played “Alberga,” the older man Ms. Stone married and stayed such until his death at age 103 in 1987, Phillip James Brannon, Daniel J. Bryant, Jonathan Burke, those are alot of B’s and the buzz for this show is big and well deserved), Toney Goins, Kenn E. Head, Ezra Knight, and Ms. Matthis.
